Uncontrolled bleeding is a major cause of preventable deaths. Approximately 40% of trauma-related deaths worldwide are due to bleeding or its consequences, establishing hemorrhage as the most common cause of preventable death in trauma. However, anyone at the scene can act as an immediate responder and save lives if they know what to do.
Contact us to discuss - This course was developed to provide strategies to individuals, to help protect themselves and reduce the dangers faced during an active shooter/killer event. It is designed and built on the Avoid/Deny/Defend strategy, which has been developed as an easy to remember method for individuals to follow. Included in this training will be the human stress response, discussions on 100% accountability relating to schools, addressing so common myths such as "hide and hope, and "playing dead," which have all been proven to be ineffective. CRASE will also address how concealed handgun permit holders can better react to situations before and during the arrival of law enforcement and what civilians can do to better protect themselves and others before law enforcement arrives. This course pairs very well with STOP THE BLEED (see above).
Many organizations request this training to share with their staff and volunteers as they incorporate it into their emergency action plans.
Course Length varies depending on your organizations needs. The didactic portion is approximately 45-60 minutes. A live training drill would add approximately 1-2 hours of time. Our CRASE Instructors are all active and retired law enforcement officers certified by the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training Center at Texas State University. In 2013, ALERRT was named the National Standard in Active Shooter Response Training by the FBI.
Many states (including Nebraska and Iowa) will not recognize online CPR/AED and First Aid training without a skills check off.
